Infertility Treatments in NY
Infertility is a common issue that affects both men and women while trying to conceive. Fortunately, we provide incredible infertility treatments:
Egg Check Test
During an egg check test, a woman must get a sonogram of her ovaries and take a blood test to confirm the current state and aging process of her eggs. She then can take the next step and go through egg freezing/ preservation for medical or elective reasons.
Fertilization is only possible with ovulation, and during the five days leading up to it. Timed intercourse entails monitoring ovulation with blood or urine testing, which ultimately checks for the LH hormone surge. We also may recommend an injectable medication to trigger ovulation and facilitate the correct timing for intercourse.
IUI Cycle: Intrauterine Insemination and Artificial Insemination
Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is a type of artificial insemination that allows the sperm to travel through and successfully fertilize the egg. Sperm is placed inside the uterus to promote fertilization. This is best for a male or woman experiencing infertility.
In Vitro Fertilization
A complex procedure, in vitro fertilization (IVF) involves a series of steps. First, eggs are grown through medications, mature eggs are then collected from the ovaries, and fertilized in a lab with her partner’s sperm or a donor’s sperm. The embryos that grown and transferred into the uterus.
Mini In Vitro Fertilization Cycle
The process of minimal stimulation IVF is the same as a regular IVF cycle. The only difference is that mini IVF uses weaker medications to stimulate the ovaries, which usually produces fewer eggs.
Cryo Cycle and Frozen Embryo Transfer
A frozen embryo transfer is the vitrification of good growing embryos after an IVF cycle has been completed. FET cycles follow a strict protocol and monitoring system, and embryos are thawed and ultimately placed in the uterus to develop further.
Donor Egg Cycle
Patients have access to our outstanding donor egg program when they choose a donor egg cycle treatment. A donor egg will either be provided by an anonymous donor or one recruited by an agency. Eggs are then fertilized with sperm by a male partner or donor. The fertilized egg/embryo that is produced is transferred to the uterus. This process is ideal for women with abnormal, unhealthy eggs or no eggs.
PGD or PGS
A preimplantation genetic diagnosis is the main result of a preimplantation genetic screening. Here, cells are removed from an embryo in an IVF cycle and tested to determine if it has a genetic condition, and whether it has 46 chromosomes.
Since both men and women suffer from infertility, our fertility preservation is a preventative measure that saves healthy eggs, embryos and sperm to increase the likelihood of conceiving children in the future.
Non-Fertility Services in NY
The NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York team also treats patients who are suffering from the following conditions:
Recurrent Pregnancy Loss
Treating recurrent pregnancy loss depends directly on the cause. For instance, if a woman experienced a miscarriage, we can obtain a chromosome analysis of the pregnancy to further diagnose a cause and treat it.
Since tubal disease involves blocked or damaged fallopian tubes, non-fertility treatment options include laparoscopic surgery to remove the prohibiting scar tissue, IVF, complete removal of the damaged tubes, or severing the connection of the damaged tubes to the uterus.
The painful condition of endometriosis can be absolved thanks to comprehensive treatments like hormone therapy, birth control hormones (for those not trying to achieve a pregnancy), non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory drugs, laparoscopy and infertility treatment.
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), thyroid issues, prolactin issues and hypothalamic issues all can cause hormonal imbalances in women. Our treatment plans for all of these issues usually involve medication or resolving the cause..
